We have discussed with LB of Bexley the planning history and redevelopment.

Planning history- Panning consent for a change of use to a tyre depot in the 1970s which is a sui generis use. All other uses (industrial, offices, residential etc.) will require a planning application for a change of use.

Residential redevelopment- It is in the primary town centre & appropriate for residential land designation. There is a current LDF but there is supplementary planning namely Design for Living giving densities etc., Planning obligation depending on numbers of units together with sustainability requirements requiring 20% of energy to be provided by renewables. There are amenity space obligations to make 45% of site for amenity space although as next to green open space it might be reduced. 1 car space/unit required which can be challenged. Character of the development will be important.
